In brief: Alcohol and vinegar
Alcohol and vinegar in equal parts is the classic recipe from lakeside summer camps.
The alcohol disinfects the ear, displaces the water, and evaporates quickly at body temperature. The vinegar restores the normal acidic pH of the skin and prevent fungal growth. Do not use any over the counter drops if you may have a perforated eardrum or a tube in the ear.
